56. A certification service provider must offer guarantees of impartiality towards any person or object that is the subject of a certification, even if the service provider is not a third person in relation to the person or object.
The service provider must ensure the integrity of certificates throughout their life cycle, including when they are modified, suspended, cancelled or archived and when the information they contain is updated.
In addition, the service provider must be able to confirm the link between the tangible or logical identification or location device and the person, association, partnership, State or object identified or located by means of the device.
The issue of a document represented to be a certificate confirming the identity of a person, the identification of an association, a partnership or the State or the correctness of an object identifier, where no verification has been carried out by or for the service provider or where the verification was so insufficient as to constitute an absence of verification, is false representation.
